My 3 boys and I

Week in Review

Filed under: National Blog Posting Month,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:17 am



rang around a few friends and asked them to write character references

While I could quite easily spend the next 3 years at home with My Little Man I am getting pressured by the welfare department and myself to not waste my uni years and to go and get a job

besides which to get registered as a teacher I have to work fulltime for 2 years

and this has to be done within 5 years of getting my degree therefore meaning 2010 I have to have done it by

Today I also played with My Little Man on line

we explored to this site

He liked the story best

Had an an afternoon sleep when My Little Man did I was awake at 5am this morning

While I was asleep My Trier ate the left over chicken I was going to use for dinner

So I cooked a Spanish Omlette for dinner instead

After dinner we went for a walk


Playgroup where I sat up again on my own

The activity was bubbles and I wish Id taken my camera

After playgroup went to one of the mothers house for lunch then took my car to the garage where it surprisingly passed its warrant. Then I went and got the registration.

After dinner last night the boys and I went for a walk


Vacuumed and tided my house today and spent the afternoon chasing giveaways





You cant be into win if you dont try (over the course of the next few days I entered approx 600 giveaways)

After school we went and got a dvd

Meet Mr Wonderful and borrowed his dvd player

but had to go over before eating dinner to get the cord that connects it to the TV

Then after dinner we watched this dvd


with popcorn, candy floss and mello yello


This is our alternative to Halloween this year

This morning after I dropped My Trier at school a friend rang and told me that a mutual friend of ours whose father died just over a year ago has now lost her mother as well. I was in shock I think not alot of what she told me sunk in. I cried and cried. I decided to go and have a coffee with my next door neighbour. She had coffee and is wonderful and very supportive. Then I had to go and see social welfare for my annual meeting. It went ok. Im sure someone must have been praying about it. They usual lay the pressure on me to get a job.

Then My Little Man and I went and got groceries.

After school My Trier suggest we go over to see my friend. I am so pleased he suggested it. Upon seeing my friend. Crying all over her. Seeing she and her family where ok. Feeling a bit strange because it was me crying not them. I actually came home again feeling so much better. When I was over there I did a 100 piece jigsaw puzzle (this is something I havent done in years). My Trier turned it upside down so mugins had to put it back together.



Got a reference from the school yesterday but in too much of a mess to say thanks so did that first thing this morning

Then came home and did the usual housework

Also helped my wonderful next door neighbour with some computer things and we also shared a coffee

As I was about to go and get My Trier this afternoon noticed there was a ragamuffin of a youth looking around my next door neighbors house. I asked him what he was doing. He told me. Seemed like a legitimate story but wasnt 100% sure so drove over to where my next doors neighbors children go to school looking for her. Eventually found her. Everything was ok but she was thankful. Then went and got My Trier from his school. We went to the bank then home.

Quiet evening. My Little Man saw the first fireworks of the season. Wow!!!! thats what he thought

We had a quiet morning

In the afternoon we went to see my friend whose Mum died the other day
Last night we went to a church function at a farm where we had a YUMMMY dinner and fireworks

He enjoyed playing in a playhouseMy Little Man helped stuff a guy

He was amazed at the fireworks and the stars


We all slept in this morning



quiet afternoon

  2. my kids loved zathura, it wasn’t really my cuppa tea. way to go on the character references and getting your qualification. i *think* i’m glad i did it when D18 was little, but not sure i’ll go back to classroom teaching, mind you it’s a dollar fifty in the bank account huh X

  4. Yes, do try to put your education to good use if your interest lies there. Otherwise, if you let time pass you by, you might regret it later.
    By the way, I have left you a Happy Blogging wish at my blog. Hope you’ll like it and share it with others. Cheers!
